Recent publications

Five new publications are available for download.

Migrant youth publications released

Two new publications are available for download from the MBIE website. The two publications are an outcome of the Migrant Youth Information Project.

The project recognises that migrant youth (aged 12 – 24 years) are a sub-set of recent migrants in New Zealand who may face particular settlement challenges related to their age and developmental stage. In addition to the challenges that may be experienced by all New Zealand youth in their transition to adulthood, migrant youth may face additional challenges related to settling in a new country and adapting to a new culture.

The two publications are:

  • an annotated bibliography of research reports and other publications focused on the challenges facing migrant youth settling in New Zealand and in other migrant-receiving countries.
  • a statistical profile of migrant youth based on Immigration New Zealand and Statistics New Zealand data.

Publications are available on the MBIE website

Previous OECD and EU work has shown that even native-born children with immigrant parents face persistent disadvantage in the education system, the school-to-work transition, and the labour market. To which degree are these linked with their immigration background, i.e. with the issues faced by their parents? This publication includes cross-country comparative work and provides new insights on the complex issue of the intergenerational transmission of disadvantage for native-born children of immigrants
